    They place I got her from said she was a Easter-egger
    But she does not have a beard and lays Brown eggs.
    Anybody have an idea what she might be? IMG_20170516_151937.jpg IMG_20170516_151948.jpg IMG_20170516_151856.jpg

    The repressed wattle growth indicates bearding genetics are in play....and some bearding is visible ....I would say she is an Easter egger, just one that drew the short straw on inheriting full bearding and blue egg genes

    Not all Easter Eggers lay blue/green eggs. They are crossbreds, that carry blue egg laying ancestry. So sadly, there is never any guarantee on the egg color, appearance, beard or lack there of, and so forth. But, that hen looks like a very stereotypical Easter Egger.
